Follow the driver
An episode from the series TAXI TO ASIA
The “Priyadarshini” taxi service aims to help women become economically independent. It was developed an NGO which arranges low interest loans so that applicant female drivers can buy their car. This episode features a divorced mum who struggles with raising her kid and must face prejudice.
Our driver, a quick mouth woman, has been a “xe om” (motorbike taxi) for 10 years and was the first lady in her area in that occupation. Her husband is also a “xe om”. She has 2 children with one with Down Syndrome. To make ends meet, our lady also dabbles in property introduction.
